MCI Onehealth, Euclid Telehealth Collaborate to Improve Patient Vision Outcomes Through Data-Driven Screening

01:08 PM EDT, 08/12/2022 (MT Newswires) -- MCI Onehealth Technologies Inc. (DRDR.TO) and eye health specialist Euclid Telehealth, are collaborating to increase access to care that can curtail and potentially prevent vision loss among Ontario patients.

MCI is using its data insights infrastructure to help family physicians identify patients within their practices that might be at risk for eye disease. Patients are then contacted by MCI to confirm their interest in attending a diagnostic session provided by Euclid at the MCI clinic. Euclid brings its portable diagnostic equipment and ophthalmologists. This physician-directed care pathway encourages patient uptake of the service, with MCI and Euclid seeing up to 20 patients per screening day. After the assessment, Euclid ophthalmologists coordinate with the patient and their MCI physician for further appropriate monitoring, or any follow up care with a local optometrist or ophthalmologist. To date, hundreds of patients have gone through the program, including several for whom blindness might be prevented, MCI said. Euclid-day clinics MCI sites happen based on patient need, currently occurring about once a week at multiple sites.
